Tuesday’s hopes of resuming this year’s French Open was crushed after several games had to be delayed because of bad weather. Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and Serena Williams will have to wait and hope for brighter skies on Day 11, Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Australia’s Sam Stosur triumphed over Simona Halep with a final score of 7-6 (7-0) 6-3. The bad weather only seemed to fuel Stosur as she released what can only be assumed as pent up frustrations over the current state of the French Open, according to the Sydney Morning Herald. Stosur pulled off a stunning upset and showed no signs of stopping.

Defeated Romanian Halep was as in awe as the rest of the crowd. According to Herald Sun, Halep was convinced that Stosur would win the women’s draw. She further said that Stosur was in good form and if she could keep it up, she might just claim the title.

French Open quarterfinalist Stosur is set to face world’s number 102 Tsvetana Pironkova, who proved to be more than her rank after crushing number 2 Agnieszka Radwanska with a final score of 2-6 6-3 6-3.

Venus Williams slams chair umpire

Following Stosur and Pironkova, Venus Williams came out on top of Alize Cornet in the third set after providing tennis fans with some amusement.

According to Bleacher Report, Williams exerted dominance, not just over Cornet, but also over the match’s chair umpire who attempted to accuse her of looking to her coach for instructions.

“Just don’t even go there,” Williams contested.

The other half of the Williams sisters insisted on her credibility as an athlete by saying that she would never do such a thing. The umpire retorted that the coach was making signals toward Williams, to which Williams responded with a heated remark that she would never ask anyone to do what she was being accused of.

Williams will be playing against Switzerland’s Timea Bacsinszky for Round 4 of this year’s French Open.

Serena Williams and Novak Djokovic to start Day 11

While her sister was having an interesting day, Serena Williams had to deal with another cancellation of her match against Elina Svitolina. While it may be for the best due to the dangerous state of the clay courts, tennis fans were left at the edge of their seats having been waiting for this match to happen since Monday.

Moving forward after Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal’s absence in the French Open, Novak Djokovic was well on his way in his match against Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut when tournament officials announced that they could no longer continue. Djokovic and Bautista Agut had been playing for two hours. The score was 3-6 6-4 4-1 in Djokovic’s favor. The bout is set to resume on Day 11 alongside Serena Williams and Svitolina.

Andy Murray, who some fans consider as Federer to Djokovic’s Nadal, was also given the opportunity to recuperate from his previous matches. With his stamina issue temporarily out of the way, he will be facing Richard Gasquet early Wednesday afternoon.

With a full list of matches to catch up on, tennis fans are ardently hoping for better weather on Wednesday.
